Where: Memrise

Date Posted:

Contact: Ben Whately


£35 - £45k + possible equity

Memrise is looking for an ambitious and energetic full stack web dev to join our team in making playful learning tools for a large and rapidly growing community of more than a million learners.

This is an opportunity to join as a key member of a small, highly skilled development team in one of the fastest growing startups in the UK. We're well funded (by, among others, Matt Mullenweg, Jeff Hammerbacher and Balderton Capital). We face many fascinating technical and product challenges, and we're growing extraordinarily fast.

Memrise operates from an amazing converted church in Hackney, with an AGA and grand piano. We strive to create the best environment for our developers to do write and deploy the best code possible.

Key skills for this position:

- Python / Django
- git
- HTML, CSS & Javascript (with use of frameworks e.g. Angular or Backbone)

Experience with these would be a bonus:
- AWS, EC2, RDS, and perhaps DynamoDB (though not essential)
- Scaling distributed applications
- noSQL and MySQL databases


Please send a CV, a letter explaining why you'd like to work for Memrise, and, most importantly, some samples of your code - a github or bitbucket URL is ideal.
